Architectural Control Committee

The Architectural Control Committee (ACC) is part of the Innerarity Island Homeowners Association.  The ACC is committed to keeping the community a beautiful, unique, environmentally friendly and aesthetically  pleasing residential treasure. 

To maintain our community for today and tomorrow the ACC provides new home construction and existing home improvement guidance and rules to assure the island stays environmentally healthy and that our property standards continue to meet our neighbors' expectations of a private community. 

Please take the time to review the construction rules found in the below library of documents.

About the ACC

The ACC is made up of fellow island residents that volunteer their time and are committed to keeping our community at the highest livability standards  possible without the over the top rules of many other private HOA regulated communities.  In addition to aesthetics, many of the ACC rules are related to the environmental impact of construction that can have many adverse impacts beyond the specific lot being built upon. The ACC takes into account the historical trees, rain drainage concerns that may impact fellow neighbors, and the local county  construction/zoning requirements. 

Other areas that the ACC reviews and provides approvals for are specific to the type of home being built. They verify that the minimum required square footage is met and  that homes being built near each other maintain variety in style and appearance to keep property values on a positive arc. 

Please see the library of ACC documents below.

Some key areas to reach out to the ACC about before and after your home is built:

  •  Approval to bush hog or remove trees on a lot prior to  and post construction 
  • Approval of your home construction plans / design
  • Approval of exterior finishes and paint colors and landscape plan
  • Approval of new pools
  • Approval to construct a fence (fences are not permitted in the front yards) 
  • Approval for new editions, driveways, sun porches, screened patio areas.

Some key areas to be aware of that are not permitted by the HOA covenants

  • Cutting down of trees without prior approval of the ACC
  • Building garages that are not attached to the home
  • Lawn sheds or storage buildings
  • Parking vehicles or boats in yards. They must be parked in your driveway or on a concrete pad. 
  • Parking vehicles on the road or edge of the roads.
